WflnH oil Viitfi to me in care of I t h e Beacon f J Journal. The winner for to- Betty Harvey day lg Mrs Owen Rice, 138 Jewett st, for the following household hints. Mrs. Rice will be mailed a check for one dollar. If you are going- away for a week and wish your house plants to be well watered, take a strip of soft white cloth, one inch wide and two feet long and place one end of it in a large jar of water and bury the other end in the dirt around the plants. When leather chairs becomes sticky, they can be easily remedied by rubbing, banana oil on them and then rubbing dry with clean white cloth. When mixing plaster of paris, use vinegar instead of water. When painting steps, paint every other one. This leaves a Needlework place to walk while steps are dry ing. Then when dry, paint the alternate steps. To wash black lace, use one tablespoon of ammonia to one cup of black coffee. Use a toothbrush for dampening seams for pressing. When sugar gets hard and lumpy, put it in your mechanical refrigerator for a day or two and it will become soft as ever. To keep parsley fresh, add a slice of lemon in the glass of water. THE NEXT two helpful hints were sent in by Mrs. Harold 0. Warner, Brady Lake. After your electric iron is heated, run it over wax paper once or twice to make it slide over the clothes more easily. If your gravy is too greasy, let it stand a minute off the fire. Then skim it with a piece of dry bread. THE FOLLOWING hints were submitted by Mrs. W". J. Ingold of Mogadore. When airing clothes, fold rubber jar rings over the line and hook the hangar into these double loops. Clothes won't slide or fly off the line. When you wash baby's bonnet, fit it over an inverted bowl to dry. This helps the bonnet hold its shape. Wash soiled phonograph records in cold water and dry flat on paper toweling. For a few drops of lemon juice, stick a fork into one end of the lemon and squeeze through the perforations. Lemon can still be of bakinj day. The holders hang kept for future juice needed. OUR NEXT group comes from Mrs. C. P. llaidet of Canton. When pearl buttons look dull and old, dip them first in olive oil, then in any good nail powder and lot stand over night. In the morning, polish with flannel or chamois skin. A buttonhole worked in the corner of the dishcloth is handier than a loop. The buttonhole lasts as long as the cloth and it can not be pulled off. , Two pot holders, one attached at either end of a tape which you wear round your neck, is a great help during the hustle and hurry even with the fingers, one at each side, and may be quickly adjusted for sliding the baked article in and out of oven.
